ASPPH Announces Funding Opportunity for Members

ASPPH, in cooperation with CDC, announces a non-research funding opportunity available through the ASPPH/CDC Cooperative Agreement. ASPPH is one of four academic partner organizations supported by CDC through the Academic Partnerships to Improve Health cooperative agreement program.  The other partners are: American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR), and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

CDC has released three funding opportunities, two of which are open to faculty holding full appointments at ASPPH member schools and programs of public health:

Tobacco Control Advanced Webinar Series

This funding opportunity is to develop an Advanced Webinar Series on tobacco control priority areas.  The purpose of these webinars in to increase knowledge of these priority areas and provide practitioners with innovative and data-driven interventions. This effort will build on the work of the CDC Office on Smoking and Health (OSH)’s Evaluators’ Network, a well-established community comprised of federal, state, local, and national tobacco control program partners.

Academic/Practice Partnerships to Impact Population Health in Chronic Disease and Emergency Response

This funding opportunity will serve to build collaborations between academic medical centers, schools of public health, state innovation model (SIM) sites, state/local health departments, and health system in a given locality and provide training environments that promote a public and population health approach in their curriculum and training pedagogy.

For more information about these funding opportunities and application information, please visit: http://www.cdc-cafunding.org/wips/start.htm. Applications are due at ASPPH no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern on April 28, 2016. We understand this is a tight timeline but hope members will consider applying.
